    A is for apple, and B is for boat,
    That used to be right, but now it won't float!
    Age before beauty is what we once said,
    But let's be a bit more realistic instead.

    A's for arthritis;
    B's the bad back,
    C is the chest pains, perhaps cardiac?

    D is for dental decay and decline,
    E is for eyesight--can't read that top line!
    F is for fissures and water retention
    G is for gas, which I'd rather not mention.

    H is high blood pressure--I'd prefer low;
    I for incisions with scars you can show.
    J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend,
    K is for knees that crack when they bend.

    L is lost hearing--now what did you say?
    M is memory lapses occurring all day.
    N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low;
    O is for osteo, the bones that don't grow!

    P for prescriptions, I have quite a few;
    Just give me a pill and I'll be good as new!
    Q is for queasy. Is it fatal or flu?
    R is for reflux--one meal turns to two.
    S for sleepless nights, counting my fears,
    T for tinnitus; there are bells in my ears!

    U is for urinary; big troubles with flow;
    V is for vertigo--that's "dizzy," you know.
    W is for worry. NOW what's going 'round?
    X is for x-ray and what might be found.

    Y is another year I'm left here behind,
    Z is for zest that I still have--in my mind.

    I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed,
    and I've kept twenty-six doctors fully employed.
